Norah Jones to Sing 'Ted' Song at Oscars

Come Away With Me

Norah Jones, 33, is the daughter of Beatle George Harrison’s musical mentor, Indian sitar artist Ravi Shankar, and American concert promoter Sue Jones. She won five Grammys for her first album, Come Away With Me, in 2003. She followed that success in 2005 with Feels Like Home, and Not Too Late in 2007. She also starred in the film My Blueberry Nights with Jude Law, Natalie Portman and Rachel Weisz.  She will tour India for the first time in 2013.

The multiple Grammy winner will perform the song by Oscar host Seth MacFarlane and Walter Murphy.

Norah Jones will perform the best original song nominee "Everybody Needs a Best Friend" from Ted during the Oscars, show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said Sunday.

It will be the nine-time Grammy winner's first performance at an Academy Awards ceremony. Seth MacFarlane wrote the song's lyrics, and Walter Murphy composed the music.
